Apollo 13 (1995): Needing a Course Correction Part 2


Uploaded on November 30, 2011 by AnyClip

The clip needing a course correction Part 2 from Apollo 13 (1995) with Tom Hanks, Ed Harris

the co-ax cross hairs right on its terminator,
all I have to know is: How long do we need to burn the engine?
The shorter, the better.
Roger that, Jim.
Can they fly it manually and still shut it down...
on time without the computer?
I guess that's the best we can do.
We're out of time.
In order to enter the atmosphere safely,
the crew must aim for a corridor just two and a half degrees wide.
If they're too steep, they'll incinerate in the steadily thickening air.
If they're too shallow, they'll ricochet...
off the atmosphere like a rock skipping off a pond.
The reentry corridor is, in fact, so narrow...
that if this basketball were the Earth...
and this softball were the moon,
and the two were placed 14 feet apart,
the crew would have to hit a target no thicker than this piece of paper.
